Skip to comments.Prosecutors mistakenly release confidential Zimmerman evidence, including body photo
Posted on 08/09/2012 3:02:47 PM PDT by ColdOne
Florida prosecutors mistakenly released a trove of evidence in the case of George Zimmerman, including a photo of Trayvon Martin's body after he was shot to death by the neighborhood watchman.
Evidence that was supposed to be only for the eyes of the lawyers and judge - at least throughout the discovery process - was included in documents sent to several media outlets. In addition to the photo, prosecutors released college transcripts that showed Zimmerman received a D in a criminal justice course at Seminole State College.

OOPS, They made an unexpected mistake.
It seems everything these prosecutors do is one big mistake. Professionals are not that error prone, so one has to doubt that the release was a ‘mistake.’
Sure they did. They need race riots to win their case. They don't have much to work with. The facts are against them.
The more pressure they can put on the judge and jury, the better chance they have of hanging what could be an innocent man - for the sake of "the cause."
This error should have them off the case. The case should be taken elsewhere as well to guarantee (at least try) a fair trial.

What are the repercussions for this sort of mistake?
I, for one, completely and utterly believe this was a mistake!
This team of prosecutors supposedly have no idea what the rules of discovery are and “by accident” released to the media information that is expected to be harmful to Zimmerman.
I don’t believe it. This whole case has been handled poorly by the prosecutors. They have broken fundamental rules of legal ethics.
The mistake is that justice is long lost in the USA
under the Tyrant Obama and the criminal DO”J”
which works for political and racist reasons,
where there was once “equal justice for all”.
“prosecutors released college transcripts that showed Zimmerman received a D in a criminal justice course at Seminole State College. “
How come Zimmermans transcripts can be released but not those of the POTUS?
I was just the other day thinking, “The whole Trayvon Martin case has calmed down. Maybe there’s a chance to have justice done (whatever it may be) without a circus sideshow.”
This is just too, “What can we release that will rile everyone up again ... I KNOW.. the photo of deceased Trayvon!” For my liking.
Mistakenly released ??? Any one else call BULLSH*T on this story.
Here’s a link to the picture of the deceased Martin that was released:
It’s a technically horrible B&W photocopy of an equally bad original. Indeed, it’s so bad I challenge anybody who sees it to say it’s of a human body unless he’s already been told it’s of a body.
>> What are the repercussions for this sort of mistake?
Well, when the defense committed the “mistake” of failing to completely inform the court of Z’s financial means, his bail was revoked and he was hauled back to jail (and then back to court to receive a new, higher, bail amount).
So I’m sure the penalty for the prosecution will be equally serious. Probably Angela Corey and her lackeys will spend a night or three in jail for contempt of court.
I’ve seen clearer pictures of Sasquatch and Nessie.
Yeah, they want their street rioting. People will see it on TV and blame it on Mitt Romney who had nothing to do with it. I’ve been wondering if the whole country is going to be ripped apart to get obamster reelected. That jackass isn’t worth all the discord and property damage. Sometimes I think it would be better to just split the country now and forget about elections.
thanks again Pam Bondi
Many problems such as 1) providing discovery to the media?
Prosecution can feed some info but the media doesn’t get a discovery package. That is for A Defendant and their lawyer.
2) How does the Prosecution obtain report cards and transcripts? They have no right to that information. They can’t run phone records unless they have a warrant and/or consent. I assume the charge is grade fraud because otherwise it is not relevant or material and it has to be both.
The A. Corey is a flaming A$$Hat. Making Nifong look smart.
I’ve been saying there’s be no election for 3 years, it’s just becoming clearer now. /sig
Does this mean that the prosecution also has Martin's records and the same kind of accident might happen to those???
It was not a mistake.It was a calculated gesture to furhter the railroading of Zimmerman. A German Jew appearing before a “People’s Court in the 1930’s Germany would have gotten a fairer trial than Zimmerman will get. In fact, a Show trial in the former Soviet Union would have been more fairer to the accused than this Court will be to Zimmerman. It has already been ordained that he pay the price for defending his life form one of Holder’s people. This is also to send a message to all Whites who plan to resist atacks on them by Blacks. The message? Should you successfully Holder’s oppressed people taking what was rightfully theirs [your life, property,sexual favors or services]from you the State will use its powers to punish you severely.
“Florida prosecutors mistakenly released.....”
“Mistakingly” my butt. They want to stir up the public again.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
I have long ceased being amazed whenever attorneys “mistakenly” lose track of trial documents and they end up in places they shouldn’t. And we are supposed to believe the recipients of these documents are going to forget all about them? Yeah, sure they are.
We can get Sarah Palin's college transcripts and George Zimmerman's college grades... but The Obamanation's is still a State Secret?
Why? Oh, why... oh why?
"Did you abscond with the church funds? Did you run off with a Senator's wife? I like to think that you killed a man... It's the romantic in me."
hahahahhaha!!! Everything needs to be web accessible. hahahahaha!!! Put it in the cloud. Technically dumb ass people abound in the US, compounded with inherent human laziness and greed. I need a web server. No, a web server and a database!!! That’ll make everything wonderful.
Protect the mediocre from awareness of mediocrity.
I couldn’t tell it was a body. And I’ve seen a lot of crime scene photos
It should end the case! How often have we read of dire reprobates being let off on "technicalities" ?
It’s funny how the media has no problem releasing Zimmerman’s school transcripts but they have no idea how to find Obama’s .
It isn't the poor grades, but rather the little mistruths they are looking at. If one lies/embellishes about one thing, why wouldn't one lie/embellish about other things too?
At this point we all know Zimmerman did not receive his AA degree because he failed a class, yet he led his friends to believe that he did and he let them throw him a graduation party where he accepted their gifts.
During his interview with Chris Serino on 2/27/12 he said:
Serino: Highest level of education?
Zimmerman: Ah, Associates.
Serino: OK youve been re .in what?
Serino: In what?
Zimmerman: Criminal Justice.
Zimmerman: I have class tomorrow.
Zimmerman: Um, I can skip it.
Serino: Can you get a note? Whos your instructor? Uh, what are you taking, I mean.
Zimmerman: Continuing for my bachelors.
Serino: In criminal justice? Which university?
Zimmerman: Political science. Um, SSC, the UCF partnership.
Serino: OK, and exactly what happened. Um, I wanna videotape this. Um, the difference between statutes and homicide and justifiable homicide and use of force, theyre, youre aware of them, you have a degree, youre familiar with what were talking about here, right?
Zimmerman: Yes, sir.
I’ve been a career counselor and recruiter most of my adult life. If padding your resume was a crime the jails would be all but bursting. Almost everyone plays that game and the employers know it. It’s “baked into the cake” as they say nowadays. Not excusing Mr. Zimmerman, if he actually did misrepresent his degree, but just letting you know it’s as common as flies at a trash dump.
Grainy or not, the photo of the deceased victim's body is being USED and ABUSED by the amoral vampires of the State to inflame the public and to taint any potential jury pool.
Really? I’ve never ‘padded’ my resume and neither has anyone I know. It’s very dishonest. Where I worked we wouldn’t have retained an employee if we discovered ‘misinformation’ on their application or in their resume.
They might get hired initally but we did investigate and they would be let go if discrepancies were found. Once we not only fired an employee because of an omission on his resume, but also his wife who was a long-time employee because she knew about the omission and didn’t speak up.
I’ll bet you a steak dinner that I could find at least 10% of your employees falsifying their experience and/or education within 2 business days. Without exerting myself.
